I enjoyed the farmer's market for the unique foods that the island had to offer. I find things at farmer's markets that I don't find in stores or restaurants. Go if you have the chance - you won't regret it.

Great ambiance with variety! I like the various cultures of food vendors that you can choose from!! We went towards the end of closing time so a lot of the vendors were closing up so make sure you leave yourself time before 2pm.

The vibe of this large market is chill. Live music while you eat from any of the wide range of food vendors (French, Hawaiian, Mexican) The selection of fresh fruits, vegetables and fish meet our needs.

Had lunch here, some very good falafel tacos. The whole market is only open on sundays but well worth it. Probably 40 stalls including food, arts crafts,etc. including vegan choices. Had to pay $2 for parking but it’s worth it.
